The present investigation deals with the free vibration analysis of a thick four-layered skew laminated composite plate with a circular cutout. Three dimensional finite element models (FEM) which use the elasticity theory for the determination of stiffness matrices are modeled in ANSYS software to evaluate first five natural frequencies of the laminate. The variation of natural frequencies with respect to various boundary conditions for different stacking sequences is presented. It is observed that, the natural frequencies are high at c-c-c-c (four sides clamped) case.
